Impact and careful use of reflections gained Andy Thomas first place in the Street Photography competition held on 6 December. Ken Phillip gained second place with a well-positioned shot of a lady passing a modern building, and Peter Wilson took third place with a traveller in silhouette whose attention had been caught by a sign. Highly commended awards went to Alison Tetley, with two for Andrée Freeman. Seven members were awarded commendations.
Commenting on the images, visiting Judge, Haydn Bartlett LSWPP, stressed the value of being able to see people’s faces in street photos, whilst he said he was particularly looking for sharpness throughout landscapes and clear separation of the elements when he looked at the entries for the General Colour competition.
Here Larry James from Silsden gained first place with an image of an osprey catching its lunch. And second and third places were snapped up by Peter Wilson with an autumn sunrise over a weir and a finely composed shot of an old pier as the tide came in. Highly commended awards went to Karen Spencer, Sharon Sawyer, Larry James, Laurie Tetley, plus two for Jayne Sanderson. Twelve images gained commendations.
